Poor Gatsby. I really enjoyed this poem (it was actually worth looking at, unlike most of the ones on this site). I kind of failed the test on 'The Great Gatsby," so I don't really know why I'm here, but oh, well.

Wow... it was so deep... the words were all meticulously chosen and the message was beautifully tragic... tuly Gatsby... I loved it all. Magnificent job. You truly understand Jay Gatsby, the main character of my favorite book. My favorite part of the poem was:

" Silken shirts and golden dreams are torn,

ripped through like flimsy paper,

mask fallen and fractured,

Fading away with life’s blood.

I am from those inclinations—

Frayed before I lived fully—

Forever surrounded in oblivion. "

Truly a gorgeous poem. Words cannot describe how great it is.
